Philippe Coutinho is about to to take the last train to show that it can be important for the FC Barcelona. The club and Xavi hernández, in concrete, has given him the enésima opportunity to the Brazilian player, the one who is living a worrisome bajón of confidence after recovering of an injury in the meniscus that kept him out of action by around ten months. The egarense considers that 'Cou' can be important.

That is the message that has transmitted Xavi to the footballer of 29 years and now he has to believe it. Has to his 'favour' that the injuries and physical problems give no respite to the Barça and that the trainer has very few effective to configure a competitive alignment. 'Cou' Confronts to a key opportunity, considering that his agreement wins in 2023 and there are two ways if it improves his performance: revaloriza and the Barça can sell it by a good price or 'force' to the culés to extend his stay.

Everything is in the table of Coutinho and his reaction goes through to be important for the Barcelona, especially if it is able to recover his best version (that probably it is tied to the confidence that have in himself same). In any case, Xavi, that thinks that the motivation is the factor 'X' to recover to a changing room sunk, trusts that it will be able to recover to the Coutinho that dazzled in the Liverpool and by which turned into him signing more expensive of the history of the FC Barcelona.

The best Coutinho has qualities that like to Xavi and his technical body, remembering his change of rhythm and doing upsetting in his impressive capacity to dribble and to deceive to the rivals using the body and also leave them on the way by his speed. All those were characteristic that showed in the Liverpool, but that in the Barça have remained expecting.

It can Coutinho have a gap in the Barça?

Xavi Hernández already recognised that Coutinho is a player that likes him a lot, by what has a 'plan' to recover his best version: "it Is a player that can act in several positions. It has to recover the confidence. It is a player that can be very important for the team, for the club. It has to reencontrarse. Has an innate talent. Will have opportunities because it is a footballer that likes me personally. By talent will not be because it has it. If all goes well, will have minutes".

Precisely the polivalencia is the point that more likes to the egarense and by which 'Cou' could enamorarlo. So much in the Liverpool as in the Barça and Bayern Munich has showed that it can play in different positions and assume different roles. It leaves the feeling that it could do more, but is stagnated. In any case, to show that it can be important to filter passes, participate with the medullary and leave the feeling that when the balloon goes through his boots can happen something, probably will have minutes with Xavi.
